Birdo as she appears in Mario Party 9

Birdo is a character that is a part of the Mario universe and appears on the Mushroom Kingdom II stage. She also appears as a collectible trophy needed to unlock the Mushroom Kingdom II stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Role in the Super Smash Bros. games

Birdo will appear on either side of the screen of the Mushroom Kingdom II stage. She shoots three eggs from her mouth then exits on the side of the screen she came from. Any character that makes contact with the egg will take damage. The eggs can be shielded, jumped on, and by air grabbing. Sometimes items come out of the eggs. It is possible to KO Birdo, but she will return to the stage later on. To KO Birdo, attack her with items and attacks. Birdo will flash the color blue when she takes damage. A few attacks will KO Birdo. No bonus points are rewarded for killing Birdo. Birdo's Egg can only be found in Kingdom II. When a Birdo appears on the stage and shoots eggs, they can be grabbed if timed right, and then thrown.

Trophy Description

A pink creature of indeterminate gender that some say would rather be called Birdetta. A big ribbon on its head is its most distinguishing feature. In Super Mario Bros. 2, you can return fire on Birdo by jumping on the eggs shot from its mouth. Be careful not to get psyched out by fake-egg fireballs!

Birdo's debut wasn't in a Mario game at all but in a game called Doki Doki Panic. Originally released in Japan, a version of that game made it to the West under a different name. Mario and friends replaced the main characters, and the game was called Super Mario Bros. 2. That's how Birdo joined the Mario Bros. family!
